Regulation lax on Illinois legislative scholarships

A three-day series by students from Columbia College Chicago, in collaboration with Illinois Statehouse News, examines Illinois' century-old legislative scholarship program. The program doled out $12.5 million during the 2007-2008 academic year. The investigation found there is "virtually no regulation of the scholarship program." The only requirement is that applicants must live in the awarding lawmakers district.
